I wish the app on the phone worked better for blogger that would make things a lot easier!!!
I will try and bring you up to speed with everything. Before this months IHSW be sure to click on the crab to join.
I joined another SAL. I know I know! After crazy Jan 2012 I swore no more and this year so far I have joined 2. IHSW but then that is all about squeezing extra stitches in which is what I am all about any way. And the second is the Joan Elliot one. I love her designs and was really tempted with this one but had held off. Then my three year old started peeking at my stitching and saying mammy I want a Dragon. So how could I resist any longer. So here is the first piece a dragon as requested my munchkin 1.
I got these bits for Mother's day from the munchkins
And seen as I now have birthday money to spend I have been looking at kitting up the Angel along with a couple other charts I have.
Now I have done a few rotations but I think maybe blogging after each move is too taxing. So I have a few progress pics to show.
Here is my progress on Spirit of the Season
I have also made some more progress on Starry Night
This is the progress from my new addition to the rotation Kingfisher in flight. This is from the Crazy Jan 2012 pile.
Here it is as I picked it up from its crazy start
I will give you all a sneaky peek at my Love tree. It's onto the backstitching.
How much difference does the backstitching give to this design!!
Hopefully I won't leave it as long to update you all. In my defence this year I have already matched my total finishes from last year. I think adding the mini kits during the day has made a huge difference. That and my munchkins are getting bigger. Last year I had a total of 19 cross stitch finishes, 3 of which were large/medium (Birth sampler, World of sarah kay and Motherly Devotion)
This year it's only April and I have finished 20 cross stitch pieces of which 3 are large/ medium (Thimble Fairy, Gingerbread houses and In the Arms of an angel)
I think also it is proof that my rotation is paying off. I'm starting to see the results now!!!!!
